“A substantial contribution of voices thoughtfully questioning the applicability of prevailing Western leadership models to our time. In a world beset by wicked challenges from the pandemic to authoritarianism to climate change, the chapters look at adaptive leadership’s ability to address our planet in peril.” Laurien Alexandre, PhD, Dean, Graduate School of Leadership & Change, Antioch University, USA

“This volume is a welcome addition to the literature on adaptive leadership. Its application to the complexity of today’s leadership challenges and extended theoretical framing will be useful to scholar-practitioners here at Drexel and around the globe.” Penny L. Hammrich, PhD, Dean of the School of Education, Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA

“A curious and at times controversial series of essays which build on Heifetz’s original work on adaptive leadership, weaving it into work on resilience and aspects of complexity science. It provides a valuable resource for scholars and thinking practitioners in the field of leadership under conditions of uncertainty.” Dave Snowden, Director Cynefin Centre, CSO Cognitive Edge

“In an era characterized by political divide and unprecedented challenge this book applies social-emotional skills such as compassion and resilience to adaptive leadership practices, offering essential strategies for all leaders, especially those charged with the academic, social, and emotional development of this generation.” Sheldon BermanRetired Superintendent, CASEL 2020 Award Recipient, Excellence in Social-Emotional Research and Practice

“Heifetz warned us in the 90s that things were getting complicated, that leadership needed to be adaptive. This new volume edited by Raei and Rasmussen provides great insight into the practices of adaptive leadership–skills every education leader needs to help communities face complex challenges.” Tom Vander ArkGetting Smart

Adaptive Leadership in a Global Economy is itself an exercise in adaptive work. The contributors help us make meaning of inspiring global case studies while proposing complementary approaches that can help practitioners transform organizational culture, catalyze systems change, advance racial justice and address a host of other critical adaptive challenges facing our world today. Marc Ross Manashil, Adjunct Assistant Professor, NYU Silver School of Social Work 

Raei and Rasmussen’s collection of essays take up Heifetz’s model of adaptive leadership and show how it can be applied and taught globally. The collection provides concrete case studies in Adaptive Leadership encountered in a wide range of major cultures including, among others, China, Japan, and Latin America.  The contributors’ tales are wide in range and rich in content. It’s a stimulating readMcCormack, former Director of International Education at the University of California, Berkeley.
